Ho Ho Ho….
Your sisters here.
In honor of Christmas being right around the corner and your gift shopping stress at an all-time high… we have come to save the day. (Or maybe we just have an online shopping problem and are using it for good for once. Or maybe you were smarter than us and utilized Black Friday and are finished with Christmas shopping. Regardless, we digress…)
Here is the 2018 Willett sister holiday gift guide.
Basically, it’s a list of gifts that would be good for any gal. Whether it’s your mom, BFF, boss, sister- we got you covered with things people will actually use and enjoy. WE REPEAT ACTUALLY USE AND ENJOY.
In true Alex fashion, here are some quirky and unexpected gifts:
This is one of my favorite gift ideas I’ve seen this year. They are necklaces in the shape of keys that you customize with a word that fits what you’re going through in life presently. For example, you can put a word like strength, purpose, etc or perhaps a date that holds meaning to you. The cool part is that you can put whatever you want on there and nobody has to know the meaning except for you. It’s your little secret. The best part is that this is a Pay It Forward company. Once you’ve worn the necklace long enough, you pass it on to someone who needs it more. It truly is the gift that keeps on giving. Also, The Giving Keys provides jobs for people transitioning out of homelessness. I’m sorry, this is THE coolest gift ever. It’s not just a simple necklace- there is so much meaning behind the purchase. Here for it. In this house, we are HERE for it.
Surely someone who reads this blog plays this game…right? RIGHT? If you do, this hat will make you smile and you’ll think to yourself what a great gift. If you don’t, you’re going to think it is hideous and will probably click exit on your web browser. It’s a gamble that I’m willing to take.
Okay, this jewelry line has THE COOLEST, MOST MAGICAL JEWELRY I HAVE EVER SEEN. Moons, stars and astrology signs that are all so beautifully and daintily put together? I am obsessed. I want it all. Honestly, I feel like Khaleesi and Khal Drogo would really appreciate these so perhaps that’s why I like them so much. The owner behind the company was raised in Thailand and started selling the line in Santa Monica. You see a perfect harmony between Thai inspiration and Los Angeles aesthetic in the line. Love it. I want to bedazzle myself with these jewels and go dance outside under the moonlight or something.
In true Morgan fashion, here are some extra and elaborate gifts:
Such. A. Good. Gift. Literally everyone uses a hairdryer.
We all know the key to good a hair day is a really nice blow dryer and we all know how miserable the ones in hotels are. This lil’ guy folds up to fit in your suitcase and is lightweight AND high power. Perfect for all the traveling guys and gals! And okay, so 135 bucks is a bit steep for a hair dryer but hey, I did say some of my gifts were elaborate. Your hair is an investment, people!!!
No one should go without a good over-the-knee pair of boots this winter. I repeat, NO ONE. And trust me, no woman can ever have too many pairs of shoes. (Words to live by).
I got these bad boys on Black Friday after reading all the raving reviews. And those reviews were so right! These are my favorite pair I have ever bought and the best part is that they actually stay up and can fit over a pair of skinny jeans. Heads up though, they run small so whoever you are ordering for… make sure to size up!
3) iHome Vanity
I just think this is nifty and creative. A well-lit mirror to do your makeup while being able to jam to tunes?! I mean getting someone just a plain speaker is SO 2017.
…Someone, please buy this for me.
Need a gift for a selfie Queen? Say hello to my little friend.
Every girl loves a good polaroid camera. I truly beg you to argue with me. Even though we just take pictures with our iPhone of the polaroids and post them on Instagram so it’s honestly weird, Inception-y and pointless… there is just something fun about an old-school camera! This new model is nice because there is a built-in selfie mirror on the front so you can check your framing and a self-timer!
In true Willett sister fashion, these are the affordable and trendy gifts:
I don’t know if this necessary counts as affordable affordable but it isn’t really quirky and isn’t also that expensive so I’m sticking it here.
You guys. This. Stuff. Is. Amazing.
For someone who is naturally fair, (this is Alex speaking if you couldn’t tell), this stuff gives me the most radiant, sunkissed glow. Sometimes I mix it with my foundation and sometimes I mix it with body lotion. Regardless, it rocks and please go buy it right away. Thank me later. 🙂
Do not roll your eyes because I listed a book. Don’t you do it. I read this book in sequester for Big Brother, (if you don’t know what that is, that is when you are trapped in a hotel room for 10 days without tv, internet, human interaction, etc and all you have is time and books), and it blew my mind. I loved Stephen King before but this book went above and beyond and has really stuck with me ever since I read it. If you know someone who enjoys reading, please buy them this book as a gift. It surprisingly isn’t scary – it is just absolutely brilliant and engaging and will leave you walking away in a daze.
HI, MORGAN HERE AND IF YOU WANT AN ACTUAL REALLY GOOD BOOK READ THE COUPLE NEXT DOOR. You won’t be able to put it down.
^Are you really hijacking my post right now? Girl, bye.
I seriously love this water bottle because as the fitness junkie that I am, I constantly am forgetting to drink enough water. (I prefer Diet Coke… workin’ on it, I KNOW). But thankfully we are living in 2018 where your water bottles can literally track your water intake. This one lights up when you need to drink more and syncs with your iPhone or fitness device so you can see exactly how much aqua you drink in a day!
Plus, it comes in fun colors. We all know the key to a good water bottle is how cute it is…
Her new line is trendy, unique and full of statement pieces that are perfect for kicking off 2019! Every girl needs a little sparkle, y’all (especially with New Year’s Eve coming up) and there is truly no better gift than some bling.
That’s all we have for you… for now!
HAPPY HOLIDAYS. HAPPY SHOPPING. ENJOY.
